The new season is finally here, and Palace kick it off with a home game against Watford, this should be an entertaining game as Watford have dropped their hard tactics of last season for the passing game, we will see.

Vital Quotes:

Watford:Boothroyd told the Watford Observer ‘We are now going there [Selhurst Park] with a young team and they have invested. They [Palace] have got a couple of senior players and Neil will get them organized and nasty, like he does’.

Crystal Palace Team News:

probable team: Speroni, Butterfield, Fonte, McCarthy, Hill, Carle, Derry, Soares, Ifill, Scowcroft and Moses

Player to watch: Victor Moses

This will be Victor’s season, Prem clubs will be watching, but unike Bostock Victor knows’s where his bread is buttered.

Watford Team News:

Tbc

Player to watch: Jobi McAnuff

He isn’t the most Orthodox of wingers but fits nicely into a 4-3-3. If Watford do play a passing game today, he could come in to his own.
